FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Zwilling JA Henckels International Fine Edge Synergy 13 Piece Block Cutlery Set

Zwilling JA Henckels International Fine Edge Synergy 13 Piece Block Cutlery Set - 15705-000

SKU #: JAH1456 at CNSstores
You can only be married so many years before you need to replace your knives. We have done this piece meal until now. After looking at the mishmash of knives I had to bite the bullet and go for a new set. I researched knives and found this set. It isn’t the cheapest nor is it anywhere near the most expensive. It had good and bad reviews. The biggest complaint seemed to be that it is recommended that you hand wash the knives and they may rust if you don’t dry them. Since I saw that concern on practically every decent knife set, I discounted those factors.

The knives are as advertised. They look good and the block isn’t enormous which is crucial for counter space. They cut the way they are suppose to cut and since I am hand washing and drying after each use I see no other issues. If I see an issue I will do an update 6 months down the road. At this point, I think the set is a very good value for the money.  ($59.95 with free shipping)

Set Includes:

•2.75" Paring Knife
•6" Utility Knife
•5.5" Boning Knife
•8" Bread Knife
•8" Chef's Knife
•Six 4.5" Steak Knives
•9" Steel
•Hardwood Block in Black
•Traditional 1 piece Hot Drop Forged
•Forged construction
•Stain resistant
•Handwash recommended

CNS Stores provided the knives for this review.  They did not make any attempt to influence the review.    They asked me to order anything on their site within a certain budget and to review it.   I respect a company that is willing to stick their neck out and invite an unbiased review.
